Hi there Adobe community,

 

I'm experiencing the following problem with the DNG converter (version 12.4.0.547). When I convert my RAW files (Nikon D750) to DNG, there is a very noticeable loss in brightness. The images come out with 1-2 exposure stops less when comparing the DNG to the RAW file (screenshot attached).

 

Is there any explanation and fix for that? 

 

Thanks a lot,

Miles

Are you using Nikon’s feature Active D-Lighting? Not a good idea when shooting RAW only Nikon’s own software can utilize those settings.
